Prayers Ancient and Modern 11/21

O Lord, may Thy all-powerful grace make me as perfect as Thou hast commanded me to be—Amen.

Thomas Wilson (1663–1755).

O Most Merciful God, whose mercies are as high as the heavens, great and many as the moments of eternity; fill my soul, I beseech Thee, with great thoughts of Thy unspeakable blessings, that my thankfulness may be as great as my needs of mercy are. Let Thy loving-kindness endure for ever and ever upon me; and, because I cannot praise Thee according to Thy excellence, take my soul, in due time, into the land of everlasting praises, that I may spend a whole eternity in ascribing to Thy Name praise, and honor, and dominion. Grant this for Jesus Christ’s sake—Amen.

Jeremy Taylor (1613–1667).
